Actuated Valves

Introduction: Why to motorize a valve?


Distant Location of the valves to be operated Need to have information about position of the valve every time Simultaneous functions: no possibility to operate few valves at a same time Reliability / Safety/ repetitive functions: to avoid possible human mistakes (someone forgot to open/close the valve) Avoiding forbidden operations Positioning (modulation) Comfort High torque

Electric Actuation: introduction


The electric actuator operates the valve through an engine switched on by electric signals. At the reception of the electrical signal the engine turns according to the signal received until the internal cam presses the corresponding microswitch. Once the following signal is received, the engine turns on the opposite direction.

Digital Positioner
DPS 2000 (J+J) The DPS 2000 is an accessory for the J+J electric actuators which converts them in servocontrolled valve positioners. Allows placing the valve in an exact position (3% precision). The input (and output) signal can be of 0-10V o de 420mA. The installation is internal, thats why it must come installed from factory. Consult conections on the actuators label. Aplication examples: - Remote control of a valve through a computer. - Dosage according to a temperature sensor.

Actuated Valves

Pneumatic Actuation: introduction


The pneumatic actuator is based on a pinion-rack mechanism. Using compressed air that intakes/outlets the chambers of the actuator and pushes/operates a pistons gear assembly which turns the central shaft and operates the valve. Two different versions: DOUBLE ACTING or SPRING RETURN.
Internal chamber

External chamber

Actuated Valves

Pneumatic actuation: double acting


The double acting actuator works by means of the direct movement of the pistons. The air injected in the actuator chamber puts certain pressure on the pistons, pushing them and operating a rack system connected to the valve shaft. The use of a solenoid valve is needed. This valve distributes compressed air in one or other chamber, depending on ther is electric signal or not. The speed of the opening or the closing operation can be controlled through safety regulators added to the solenoid valve. Strongly recommended in order to avoid waterhammers or vibrations in the pipeline.

Actuated Valves

Pneumatic actuation: spring return


The spring return actuator works through springs system: when compressed air is injected in the internal actuator chamber at a certain pressure, the springs are retracted (making the valve open or close). The lack of air in the chamber allows the springs expansion (making the valve close or open). The springs (by retraction or expansion) move a rack and pinion system connected to the shaft of the valve, so the ball or disk opens or close. The use of a solenoid valve is needed. The solenoid receives information from the electric control box to allow or not the continuity of the air-flow, activating or deactivating the valve operation. Its a safety device. In case of a temporary lack of air flow, the actuator goes back to initial position thanks to the springs. The spring return actuators are the solution for controlled emptying applications. For example, if we want to withdraw a fluid from a tank and we have a sudden lack of air flow or power failure, the springs will return the valve to close position, avoiding an uncontrolled emptying.

Actuated Valves

Pneumatic Actuation: spring return vs. double acting

Spring Return (Air to Spring / Fail safe) Requires air to open only, once air is exhausted springs close the valve. Fail position open or close if air supply is lost. NC (fail safe close) o NA (fail safe open)

Double Acting (Air to Air) Requires air to open and air to close. No fail position if air supply is lost.

Final Comparison

Actuated Valves

Electric Actuation vs. Pneumatic Actuation


Benefits: Comes with more serial components (limit-switches, manual control, etc.). No need for compressed aire installation (just electricity) Easy to install Specially recommended when we need to actuate one or few valves. Modular systems. In case of requiring positioner, this will be installed internally (does not take extra-room) Medium/high operation time (minimum 7-8 s), useful to avoid water hammers Possibility to add safety block (BSR) with battery for the maximum safety Constant torque. Less weight / room. No minimum pressure required as with the solenoid valves (air). Warnings: Not recommended for low time operation applications. Not recommended in explosion-risk environments, very humid or saline (ex: minery) Life: 20.000 cycles guaranteed.

Electric Actuation

Actuated Valves

Electric Actuation vs. Pneumatic Actuation


Benefits: Low operation time. In any case, the operation time can be regulated through escape regulators in the solenoid valve. Guarantees de maximum safety against supply failures (air and electricity) thanks to the spring-return. Appropriate for explosion-risk environments. Appropriate for installations with many actuated valves. 1.000.000 cycles guaranteed. (appropriate for applications which require many operations daily). Warnings: Requires compressed air supply as well as electricity supply to feed the solenoide valve. Not recommended for outsides (the compressed air can condensate) or when the valve is far-away (difficult to send the compressed air) Requires additional accessories: limit-switch box, solenoide valve, The torque constant (and thus the valve operation time) depends on the air pressure and thus in the correct working of the compressed air installation (example: the closer valves have pressure, but not the distants ones)

IMPORTANT: Always if possible is very important to have the maximum information about the application where the valve will be installed. This way we can recommend better which actuator should be used.
